Last night I learned about TierZoo, a youtube channel that treats real animals as if they were character classes in a video game. It ranks them, strategizes, talks about patch notes... simply marvelous
Japan asked the international media to change how we write their names. No one listened

I've got a customer build happening on SquareSpace starting in the next week or so. I've never worked hands-on in that platform before so I spent this morning diving into documentation.
